Hey everyone, I saw this great feature on another site.  Not sure if it is Magento or not but some of you developers may know.

when you mouse over the image of the product, a “Quick View” button appears over the image.  When you click on it, a light box opens with the product images, description and add to cart button etc.  It would be better with an additional “Buy Now” button that took you straight to checkout.  It does not take you away from the category or home page you are viewing which is nice.

Here is the link to the site.  Just mouse over an image on the home page to show the button.  Then click and test it.

Any idea if that extension exists for Magento???  I searched but could not find it.

I haven’t been able to find an extension for this unfortunately. We ended up building this functionality from scratch for a client recently. It wasn’t as bad as it would initially seem to be honest. The biggest road block for us was performance.

If I happen to stumble across an extension that does this I’ll be sure to post it here.

Sounds good.  Do you have a link to the one you built?  My developer said he could build it, but was hoping we could find an extension.

The site we’re using this on is in development now. This new functionality won’t be out until the site’s new design rolls out in February some time.

It’s essentially the same as the demonstration in the url you sent. Only noticeable difference is the design to be honest. We built a custom shadowbox popup that fades in the same way essentially (ajax loader image is different, but present).

If someone comes across this later on and wants to see the functionality in action:

Thanks Andrew.  I am surprised that extension has not been created by someone yet.  It allows your customers to view the product without losing their spot on the page they are surfing/viewing.
